Another year of festivities is right around the corner but so is the season for gifting. Even though, gifting is not a priority in the traditional ways of celebrating Diwali, it has become an important part of the rituals. It is that one time of the year when you can appreciate your loved ones by giving gifts. We understand how confusing and exhausting selecting gifts can be. Which is why, we have compiled a list of gifts that can be gifted to everyone in your family, regardless of their gender or relationship with you.
This is inexpensive and has the potential to look the prettiest of all the ideas on the list. Diwali is the festival of lights and therefore, keep the focus on unscented candles. This will help you stay budget friendly. Buy a variety of shapes and sizes, pick a colour theme and place your candles in a box or a basket. Decorate with ribbons or threads and you are good to go. You can even entirely DIY this hamper.
You can actually buy one or try and be creative with your instincts. Pick a fragrance of your liking and start choosing products that match it. Choosing the products not from the same brand gives you the freedom to stick to your budget. You can get a body wash, body lotion, body mist and perfume set. In order to make it look cohesive, pack each product separately and as per a theme of your choice. Put the individuals in a box with a card and some chocolates and you are good to go!
Ethnic fashion is something that everyone utilises at some point in their life. As much as it seems that ethnic wear is more expensive, if you search in your local stores you are sure to find some inexpensive options. In case you are gifting this to a woman, you can add some matching junk jewellery or a bag and such other accessories. You can switch up the accessories to make it suitable for a man as well.
Just like the candles hamper, here we will place different variety of lights. This can contain anything from generic fairy lights to creative and cute lamps. You can add tea lights, LED lights, light up boxes and even a letter light (initial of the person you are gifting it to). Pick a colour theme and decorate your hamper accordingly. This hamper can be as personalised or as generic as you would want it to be.
Finally, we have something that is festive in this gift guide. We are talking about pretty lanterns, bandanwars (traditional wall hangings that are hung above the doors), hand-painted diyas, a “Happy Diwali” wall hanging and even unique decorative lights. For this one, you can also add a small box of sweets keeping with the festive spirit.
